Well, we have been working on the house non-stop because
once Mr. BRC starts working outside the house,
it's gonna go slow(er).
But, we have taken some time (meaning hours) off
here and there to get out and explore and to
get together with our new peers.
This week we went into Montgomery looking
We revisited Rescued Relics in
hopes of finding some Vintage
pieces that we could incorporate
into our new home.
We didn't find cabinets but we did find
I think with our Eclectic style,
any of these awesome pieces would fit like
a charm in our little humble home.
we hit the local Habitat Re-Store
and found some tile
that will work perfectly
for the kitchen entrance,
laundry room and walk in pantry
(all three rooms are connected).
It looks like a smooth slate, almost black,
but it's a porcelain. The texture
and easy care will be perfect for that area.
Can't wait to pick some up and get going on that!
(photo to come!)
Here's where we are on the kitchen:
New drop ceiling is in
and I have become the resident drywaller.
Who knew making these ...
would give me skills to do this...
|I got to tape and mud the seams and screw holes.|
Texture is next!
We're further along now but I'll show those pictures later.
Bruce installed some new lights, a chandelier and lots
of hidden outlets for a well working kitchen.
The little nook will house a cute cafe table and two chairs
(once I find the right set).
Can't wait to have my morning
coffee there and watch nature!
After we finish "finishing" the
original carpenter's work,
(umm, like re-taping ALL the seams and adding screws to
the ceiling and remainder walls throughout the house),
|where are the drywall screws?!|
we'll be texturing.
That will be the icing on the cake!
Then I get to paint!!!
Actually, I just can't wait till
our floor doesn't look like this anymore:
Soon enough... soon enough.
See ya soon!
